Forest fires... probably the ugliest of all fires (also can be spectacularly ugly). The pic is more focused on the smoke and is rather dark overall.

I appreciate seeing something different for this challenge, but this is too much of a snapshot. Seems like a good candidate for HDR to brighten up some of the road and cars without washing out the flames.

Good snap shot. A little underexposed and if you could have moved closer? But nice capture all the same 5
